‘Love is Blooming’ Animal Adoption Event During National Pet Week Continues Through Saturday, May 7, at County Animal Services and Adoption Center

The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC), which is operated by the Montgomery County Office of Animal Services, will waive adoption fees for all animals as National Pet Week continues through Saturday, May 7. The event is sponsored in part by Montgomery County Partners for Animal Wellbeing (MCPAW).

The adoption center is located at 7315 Muncaster Mill Rd. in Derwood.

Anyone who submits an adoption questionnaire by May 7 will receive a voucher valid through May 21 for a fee-waived adoption.

Standard adoption procedures are still in place. Interested adopters should visit the website to view available pets. An appointment can be made by filling out the application online, calling the shelter at 240-773-5900 during business hours or by walking in. Patrons with scheduled appointments will have priority over walk-ins. Submitting a questionnaire does not reserve an animal for adoption, which are first-come, first-served by appointment.
